How to Maintain Your Pool’s pH Balance

To have the best swimming experience possible, you want to be certain your pool’s pH balance is ideal. Optimally, you want a pH balance between 7.4 and 7.6. Any more than that and your pool is going to be too alkaline. Any less than that and your pool is going to be more acidic. Luckily, there are simple ways to attain the perfect balance.

Apply Chlorine

Most residential pools depend on chlorine to keep the pool sanitary. Chlorine is optimal for eliminating bacteria and algae, so people can swim with ease. You should always follow the directions when adding chlorine to a pool so that it is still enjoyable to swim in.

Adjust When Necessary

If you need to change the chlorine levels or levels of any other chemicals you are adding, then you want to make sure you are going about it wisely. First, you never want to mix two different chemicals because you never know how they will react with one another. Additionally, you can test the pH level with a pool-testing strip, which you should be able to acquire at most pool stores. This will tell you how much the pool needs to be adjusted.

With proper maintenance and service, your pool will continue being a fun fixture on your property. Learn more by going to Pisces Pools and Spas in Southeast Michigan.
